Anyone Have A Spinal Stimulator Implant?

Anyone Have A Spinal Stimulator Implant?

I am to have surgery for this implant on the 22 of oct..and I am nervous about the pain involved with it in addition to my back pain as they wont turn the device on till after I am healed. Any advise and experience welcome

I am also having a stimulator implanted but they are doing a trial run first for a week. I honestly thought that would be standard practice but maybe not. Could you ask for a trial run before getting a permanent one? Im with you Iā€™m nervous too. I hope it works out for you. šŸ™šŸ™
